Introduction

The Low Carbon and Materials Processing group is a research group within the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Our work has two main themes: developing innovative materials processing technologies, mainly for flexible forming of metal under computer control; and, identifying and pursuing opportunities where engineering can contribute to a low carbon future, particularly through reduced energy demand in industry.
Our current research falls into four linked areas:

Our lab includes many novel technologies that we have invented and are investigating. Our work is described in presentations, publications and videos and we run the “Engineering for a Low Carbon Future” seminar series in Cambridge.

 

We have provided a short introduction to our work in the brochure:
